The Truth About Hair Removal

By Robert Thatcher

When hairs thrive on parts where it should not be seen, or when it creates an impression of hideousness according to the tenets of fashion and trend in the society,it becomes an absolute veto on its true sense.

For this reason, more and more people are engaging into cosmetic enhancements in order to correct, improve, or modify the inappropriateness of hair development in the body.

No wonder why most women would rather have silky, smooth legs and whiter armpits. Men, on the other hand, are also into hair removal based upon their interest like removing excessive growth of hair on the chest and on the face.

The Science of Hair Removal

The general term for hair removal is known as "depilation." This refers to the removal of the unwanted hair that will impinge on the upper surface of the skin.

Generally, the most common process used in hair removal is shaving. This refers to the actual removal of hair using the razor. It is commonly used to remove hairs on the chest and on the face, for men; and on legs and underarms, for women.

However, the purpose of doing such act may vary. So for those who want to know the easons behind why different people have different purposes in hair removal, here is a list that will guide you in understanding the variations of purposes in hair removal:

1. Social purpose

There are people who despise other people that do not conform to the societal standards of ideal looks and appearance. Most of this aspect concerns the appearance of hair in parts where it should not be seen.

This is sometimes the main basis of both men and women when they constitute the epitome of beauty. Thus, for people who do not conform to the standards set by the society, they will be rejected, alienated, and will have difficulty in gaining social recognition.

2. Military-based purposes

People in the military are expected to shave their hair in the head. That is why most of the military people are semi-bald. This is their way of creating distinction and identity in the society.

3. Spiritual purpose

In some religious organizations, hair removal is usually done to signify "ordination." It is one way of creating distinction upon classes. For instance, the "Brahmin children would have their head shaved before they start schooling.


Whatever purpose each person has when removing hairs in their body, it is still important to use the proper tools and method so as to ensure hygiene, efficiency, and attractiveness.

Here is a list of some tips:

1. Use some wax if you want to remove hair underneath the area of the skin. It is effective if you are too busy to remove hair everyday. This is because waxing removes the inner shaft of the hair, which, in turn, prolongs the development of another new set of hair.

2. Always consult an expert when opting for more advance method of hair removal such as laser home removal and electrolysis. Engaging into these kinds of hair removal will create serious problems when performed by a non-expert.

3. When using wax for hair removal, it is best to use wax that is authentic. This is because only authentic wax strips and other materials used ion waxing will initiate effective hair removal.

Indeed, the concept of hair removal may vary from different purposes to different people. And engaging into such activity is not as easy as 1-2-3 because any wrong application, hair removal could do more harm than good.

So it is best to be wary of the methods and principles to be used in hair removal.
